Ti-NAS RT – Tape-in-NAS Platform in 2U Rackmount

Windows Server 2019 based Platform for Backup-to-Disk-to-Tape with integrated LTO Tape Drive for use in IT Racks

Press Release: Dortmund, 4th of March 2021
Following the successful market launch of the desktop version within actidata’s Ti-NAS product family, the German storage system specialist is now presenting a new variant of the combined NAS and backup platform as a 2U rackmount version. With the Tape-in-NAS product line, actidata Storage Systems follows market demands for higher capacity in removable media for professional backup. actidata Ti-NAS RT combines proven LTO technology with a 6bay hardware RAID storage system to a platform, allowing the execution of the popular Backup-to-Disk-to-Tape backup strategy. actidata Ti-NAS RT scores with features, like up to 108TB of disk capacity and 12TB of net capacity per medium using an LTO-8 tape drive. The existing network is connected via optical dual 10Gb Ethernet interfaces as well as dual 1Gb Ethernet in RJ-45 version.

Open Platform for Backup-to-Disk-to-Tape (B2D2T)
Today a tiered backup is usually required by administrators. actidata Ti-NAS RT can be used as a backup server as well as a backup target. RAID-managed disk space is available for the first stage of the backup strategy. Thanks to the open platform, the administrator decides which backup software is used and take responsibility for the Backup-to-Tape (2nd stage). The following data transfer to the built-in LTO tape streamer will be executed internally, so that the productive network is not used. This is important especially during day time operation. The installation and integration of the 2U rackmount NAS and backup platform can be installed either in the server room or connected via optical LAN into a separate fire section.

Support of all major backup software vendors
The installed operating system is “Windows Server 2019 IoT for Storage”, which is the successor of the Microsoft Windows Storage Server. This version of the Windows Server 2019 family, which is only available to Microsoft OEMs, is factory-installed and licensed by actidata. The actidata Ti-NAS RT in general is designed as an open platform. This means the user decides for his preferred backup software and installs and runs this on the system according to his own preferences. The selected backup application needs to be compatible to Windows Server 2019 as well as supporting LTO Tape Drives.

Server hardware makes it possible
Consistently deployed with server components, actidata not only relies on an embedded industrial motherboard with four LAN interfaces supporting 10Gb/s and 1Gb/s Ethernet standards, as well as on a 4core Intel server CPU, factory-installed 32GB RAM DDR4 ECC and an internal M.2 SSD for the Windows Server 2019 IoT operating system. The actidata Ti-NAS RT platform is managed via remote desktop (RDP) and the hardware can be monitored via the separate IPMI interface. Thanks to Windows Server 2019 IoT, user get access to the internal RAID secured disk-storage without using additional CALs. The integrated hardware RAID controller provides cache buffering and ensures the performance which is needed to operate an LTO Tape Drive.

actidata Ti-NAS RT is now available
